Moved non-encyclopedic battery replacement information provided 8 May 2010 here, which already is covered in general terms in the article:

A replacement for the original battery is now made, the Lithium/air Wein Cell which is a direct replacement for the original mercury cell, its only real disadvantage being that after activation the battery has a shelf life of around 12 months whether it is used or not.

With respect. Jan von Erpecom 16:51, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Incorporated the //Se also// note regarding the Sony translucent mirror camera to the introduction, since this article deals with the Pellix camera not the mirror per se. Jan von Erpecom 13:24, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Special lenses for the Pellix[edit]

Thanks are due to Cadillacmike for correcting the erroneous info retrieved from Matanle's SLR book. - The Canon Single Lens Reflex Cameras 1959 - 1991 by Peter Dechert confirm this fact by only mentioning the 38mm lens specially made for the Pellix. A search for a Canon FLP 19mm lens using Goggle was without luck. The Canon 19mm lens at hand is also of the FL variety. It is the fact that the mirror is stationary that allows the lens to protrude more into the mount, not limiting the use of wide-angle lenses as stated by Matanle in his book.--Jan von Erpecom 21:11, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
